Having Balance In Life…

Brian HS VofF

Having balance in life is essential to your personal well-being.  This balance in the Mental, Physical and Spiritual aspect of your life is crucial to your well being.  What do I mean by this?  If you for whatever reason obsess on anything to a point where it becomes the main focus of your life then your personal balance will be out of whack.  A healthy life has lots of different aspects to it.  Such as a physical aspect where you train or exercise such as lifting, running, biking, swimming, etc.  A mental aspect where you are constantly learning and growing and testing yourself and a Spiritual aspect where you get in touch with your inner self, etc.  All of this, the Physical, Mental and Spiritual also interact with your personal relationships such as family, friends, work, etc.  If you allow one aspect to be neglected or you obsess in one or two areas then other aspects of your life may be harmed or out of whack.  This effect can cause you to be out of balance and create negative effects on your life.  Look at the sword saint Miyomoto Musashi.  Throughout most of his life he obsessed on his dueling and the martial skills he practiced.  To the point that he routinely neglected many aspects of his life such as friends, family, hygiene, etc.  His life was significantly out of balance until much later in life and even then you could say his balance was probably off.  While great at what he did, ie. killing people in duels and writing a wonderful book.  It appears that he suffered from this mentally and spirtiually.  By all account he was out of balance and he suffered because of it.  The old phrase, “you only live once” is true.  You really only have one go around.  If you can find balance in your life that makes you happy, that is essential!  However, how you do this is the key, as we are all different.  What may work for me, may not work for you and vice versa.  My advice to anyone is to find balance in your life that makes you happy and treasure every moment.  Life is short after all.  Find what makes you happy and live!
